Kenmore 2 Way Tumble Action Front Load Washer

My washer has done this before but now I dont think its gonna fix itself. When I put it though a cycle it fills with water and washes the cloths fine but the spin cycle wont work, it doesnt spin fast and the water doesnt drain out, it stays with the same water the whole cycle. And I dont know if this makes a difference but theres a black rubber piece around the inside of the door were the water comes out and I believe thats were the water goes while draining, well theres a rip in the rubber piece, would that be why its not draining??

    Well, I had the same problem with this model too. And tried an educated guess (this from a dummy) I replaced the the motor. It worked fine most of the time. I went as far as even taking the back panel off just so I could manually spin the pulley on the drum which would assist the motor to operate, of course after a few attempts. But this infrequent procedure worked for about one year almost to the date.............But, now I'm crying for HELP.....Can anyone help me?

No thats two different problems. The rubber piece (boot) forms a seal to prevent the water from leaking out, that should be replaced. Water might have leaked and ruined the pump. At the end of all cycles is there still water in the tub? If so your pump is either clogged or has gone bad, and thats why the washer wont go into extract.

If it is the one I'm thinking there should be 2 screws that hold the bottom panel, that should give you access to most of the parts.

Kenmore elite lock problen

I had the same problem. Turned out, electronic panel behind the door had spring action malfunctioned because of misplaced spring, which in turn caused panel to not generate a signal which, stopped the whole cycle.
Here is what I did to fix the problem- 1. Open the door 2. Remove the ring behind rubber-cover on the door. 3. Reach out to the inside-right of the door. 4. Remove the panel after removing electric connections. 5. Fix the spring action. 6. Put everything back and start the machine over.
